Two men were found dead of an apparent overdose Saturday afternoon.

Lt. Jason Matson of the Bakersfield Police Department said the men were found at a bus stop at White Lane and Gosford Road at 4:20 p.m.

They were deceased.

“It appears there was an overdose at this time,” Matson said.

There had been other calls for overdoses during the day, he said, but none were fatal and it is not clear if they were related to the two bus stop deaths.
